    You shouldn't leave your sheet film hangers in the oven!

    I always dry my stainless hangers in the oven between sessions. The 260degrees F for about 5 minutes is all it takes. This time i forgot to take them out from the day prior and my fiance preheated the oven to 450 for some cookies. That solder doesn't hold up too well and i've now got a few holders with detached corners and hinges. Oops

    Seems strange, I have never seen a film holder "soft Soldered" all I have ever seen were silver soldered or brazed and your oven should have made them only too hot to touch. I think a bit more investigation should be done in this very unusual case.

    If any drops of solder fell into your oven, I would make sure they are removed promptly.

    One of the currently available solders for stainless steel is a zinc-bismuth alloy that is essentially non-toxic and ought to be pretty nearly inert in photo chemicals (Kodak used to sell a galvanized tank for developing). You should be able to find that in better hardware stores and use it to repair your unsoldered hangers...
    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.
